My research focuses on development, validation and implementation in practice of novel methods for training and assessment of surgical skills. The surgical skills lab at St. Michael's Hospital includes state-of-the-art virtual reality computer simulators and box-trainer modules for basic and advanced laparoscopic procedures. Our current activities aim at investigating the impact of evidence-based training curriculum on the quality and speed of skills acquisition in minimally invasive surgery.

I am currently supervising two PhD students, one at the University of Copenhagen, Denmark and one at Aarhus University, Denmark. I am also co-supervsing a M.Ed. student at University of Toronto/OISE.
